Morena – I have a nutty question around ‘unapproved medicines’ under The Medicines Act 1981 and the advertising restrictions. I understand that we are not permitted to advertise that we have unapproved medicines. My question is how far does this ‘restriction’ go? For example, if I have signed a distribution agreement to import and distribute to GPs an unapproved medicine under the Act (but I have all of the licenses for importing, storing etc) am I allowed to put that I have signed a partnership agreement with that company? Can I be interviewed in the press about that agreement? How do I make sure that I don’t breach the advertising restrictions? I know this is quite a challenging question, so thank you in advance if anyone has some insights on this. Nga Mihi.
